Independence day….the Aftermath!

How was your Independence Day? What did you do to celebrate?

I went with my partner to his family’s home in Azcapotzalco. We went to the fair that was set up around the Town hall and the market, ate a little too much food, drank a little too much beer and then went and had more food and beer with his family. All in all it was a great night!

Here are some pictures I took…before I became too tipsy on the beer.


Happy Independence Day!

Today marks the beginning of the “Independence day” celebrations in Mexico. People are dressed up in their patriotic colours, have hung up their flags and other decorations and there is a general sense of festivity in the air.

At 11pm (Mexico City time) the President of the Republic, Felipe Calderón, will give the annual “Grito Mexicano”. A patriotic cry naming the heroes of the Mexican war of independence and ending in three shouts of ¡Viva México!

For those of you who read this blog, I wish you a happy and safe Independence Day. In the years to come, we who love this country, have a responsibility to improve the situation here in Mexico. So raise a glass to Mexico and all who live here. Certainly, working together we can change everything.

¡Viva México!
